College football. Wow. My mind has been blown. The idea that a college town's population could simply grow by 100,000 just for a day as people flow in for a football game sounds ridiculous, but to see it is something else. The town of Auburn became an overflowing sea of people wearing orange yesterday as fanatical fans came to support their team, the Auburn Tigers.

We got a great view of the Confederate Memorial Carving. We decided to walk to the walk up path on the side of the mountain. We took the Cherokee walk through wooded area.
